Bootstrap Blocks

Description

Bootstrap Gutenberg Blocks for WordPress. Supports Bootstrap 4 and Bootstrap 5 (experimental). This plugin adds Bootstrap components and layout options as Gutenberg blocks.

The full documentation of this plugin can be found on GitHub: https://img.themes.show/wordpressORG/plugins/block/pic/detail/20210110/4124

Available Blocks

Container

Options:

  • Fluid: If enabled the container will use the full available width, spanning the entire width of the viewport.
  • Fluid Breakpoint: Used to enable responsive containers. This feature only works with Bootstrap v4.4+. The container will use 100% of the width until the specified breakpoint is reached, after which the defined max-widths will apply for each of the higher breakpoints.
  • Margin After: Define a margin which should be added after the container.

Row

Options:

  • Template: Choose from a predefined template for the inner column blocks.
  • No Gutters: Disable gutters between columns.
  • Alignment: Horizontal alignment of inner column blocks.
  • Vertical Alignment: Vertical alignment of inner column blocks.
  • Editor stack columns: Displays stacked columns in the editor to enhance readability of block content.
  • Horizontal Gutters: Size of horizontal gutters.
  • Vertical Gutters: Size of vertical gutters.

Column

Options:

  • Sizes for all breakpoints (xxl, xl, lg, md, sm, xs): How much space the column should use for the given breakpoint.
  • Equal width for all breakpoints (xxl, xl, lg, md, sm, xs): If enabled column will spread width evenly with other columns.
  • Background Color: Set background color to column.
  • Center content: Center content vertically in column. This option is only needed if a background color is set. Otherwise use the Alignment option of the outer row block.
  • Padding: Define padding inside the column.

Button

Options:

  • Style: Choose the styling of the button.
  • Open in new tab: Choose if link should be opened in a new tab.
  • Rel: Set rel attribute of the link.
  • Alignment: Horizontal alignment of the button.

Supported Bootstrap versions

This plugin supports Bootstrap v4 and v5 (experimental). The support for v5 is still flagged as experimental since this Bootstrap version is not officially released yet. The API could still change which could affect the options defined in this plugin.

The version can be selected in the plugin settings (Settings > Bootstrap Blocks) or by defining the WP_BOOTSTRAP_BLOCKS_BOOTSTRAP_VERSION constant in the wp-config.php file:

  • Bootstrap 4 (default): define( 'WP_BOOTSTRAP_BLOCKS_BOOTSTRAP_VERSION', '4' );
  • Bootstrap 5: define( 'WP_BOOTSTRAP_BLOCKS_BOOTSTRAP_VERSION', '5' );

Possible values right now are '4' or '5'. By default Bootstrap version 4 is selected.

Bootstrap library

Please be aware that this plugin does not include the Bootstrap library in your website. You need to do this by yourself. We decided not to include the library so that you can modify Bootstrap to your own needs before loading it.

You’ll find an example how to include it in your theme’s function.php in the documentation.

Templates

All blocks are implemented as dynamic blocks. This makes it possible to overwrite the template of a block in your theme.

To overwrite a block template create a folder called wp-bootstrap-blocks/ in your theme directory. You can copy the original template from wp-bootstrap-blocks/src/templates/<blockname>.php as a starting point and adjust it to your needs.

Requirements

  • WordPress >= 5.0
  • PHP >= 5.6

Very good plugin for Bootstrap

I started using Bootstrap Blocks because I wanted a better WordPress back-end experience instead of actually coding raw code in a file. With Bootstrap Blocks, I can have a better back-end experience and have a peace of mind knowing that the developers working on the plugin are using Bootstrap best practices. The plugin is also regularly maintained and updated to work at its peek performance. I’m very happy with Bootstrap Blocks and I highly recommend for any developer who is working with WordPress + a Bootstrap theme.

great plugin

Have you ever had a good experience trying to create rows / columns, with the default WordPress blocks, on a Bootstrap site / theme? Unless you used this plugin to do so, I highly doubt it.

This plugin is the key to success in the above scenario, and makes it so blog posts look like they actually belong in the site, rather than just being an afterthought. Best of all, it’s 100% open source! No annoying ads, no annoying paywall, just straight up solid functionality / support.

If you use Bootstrap for your theme, you need to use this plugin.

A big thank you to the developer(s)!

Yes 🙂
